Canon 5D Mark III Reviews

I decided to collect some links to real reviews of the new Canon 5D Mark III.  I wasted a lot of time clicking through links, only to find that something touted as a “review” was actually a “preview” and simply talked about the specs and operation of the 5D Mark III based off of a Canon press release.  Boo….

Since the 5D Mark III has been arriving in peoples hands for a couple of days now, there will be plenty of reviews soon.

These are all links to people who have used the actual 5D Mark III (or 5D3 or 5DM3) as I sometimes see) so you can actually read opinions and see plenty of sample pictures.  I don’t care much about video, so these will be primarily photography focused reviews.  Enjoy!
